Prayers for you dude!
I'm Sure Babawian mo yan!
Rock on Dude! Don't let that coconut tree make you gulay!
Coconut Lumber anyone? (Don't worry, DENR will understand!)
history: i remember another DH brad Redentor, now in dubai, he was riding fast down ridge 3 but the coconut tree did not move out of the way, and he hit it! ayun hilo sila pareho nung coconut!
he just suffered: death going to unconsiousness (kala nila tigok n), pagbula ng bibig, temporary amnesia.
after a few months, while he was in vacation in Bicol, he just pass by an overpass and decided to try a stairs gap! but unfortunately he did it face first! he suffered A lot of stitches in his face, death going to unconsiousness (buhay pa rin), temporary amnesia, and umaatikabong sermon from his mom and wife (he was to buy something lang pala sa tindahan!), plus a segment in TV Patrol Bicol.
As far as i know Death casualty in DH is not yet taking toll, unless you'll have a heart attack! Death can't chase us since he's scared chasing you Downhill! harharhar!
recover fast and ride again brad! don't let that thing stop you!
